The Buddha Metta Village Project is a newly developing centre for lay people, monks and nuns. It is under the direct guidance of Venerable Phra Chaowaphit Sudhiro (Ajahn Sudhiro) of the forest tradition in North East Thailand. The village is continuing to be built.
The project offers an opportunity for Buddhists and those interested in Buddhism to directly experience this tradition.
The intention is to live within the teachings of the Buddha – living in Dhamma. This will support the development of a unique community that will include a combination of visitors and local people.
This project will enable lay people to practice meditation together in a simple traditional way. It is also hoped that monks and nuns from outside Thailand will come and stay to experience life in a Buddhist community.
This is a place to build your practice and practise your building—as a way of integrating spiritual and daily life more fully. Together this Buddha Mettā community will continue to physically build the Dhamma village and from the merit gained, extend mettā around the world.
